Undercover Cook was a really short read but I loved every word! I could just imagine myself trembling in my chef shoes in the professional kitchen! Katie is one of my favourite authors and this book is just as good as one of her full length novels. It reminded me of Thyme Out with the overbearing chef! I think Theo would make Gordon Ramsey sound tame! I do agree with some of the other reviews that the story ended too abruptly but don't let that put you off. I would recommend this to any Katie Fforde fans.The Undercover Cook

I also didn't realise this was a short story when I bought it. And it was very short and very simplistic. I was a bit bored waiting for the story to get going. And then it just stopped. I've really enjoyed several of her proper books but felt totally let down with this. I'll be more careful purchasing anything from this author in future.

Well I suppose it didn't help that I didn't realise this was a short story until it suddenly finished (just thought I was getting an Amazon bargain). I have read several books by this author before and always found them to be well written with likable, well-rounded characters. Not in this case. The writing was overly simplistic without any depth and does not reflect this author's strengths and the ending was awfully cliched. I should point out that I am not a fan of short stories and this has undoubtedly influenced my review. Still, this is the first book that I have deleted from my Kindle - purchased, completed and deleted in under 15 minutes.

Im actually abig fan of Katie fforde and have read her other books over and over again; but this was a bitter dissapointment.

I feel this was just too short and badly written, clearly as an advert fopr her upcoming novel and really not worth your reading.

I thought this was very cheap for a Kate Fforde book and it was! It's just a very short story, just one chapter. Don't buy thinking you are getting one of her books, you're not. Should be made much clearer that it is a short story.

As others have mentioned - this is a VERY short story with absolutely no substance, storyline or anything at all to identify it as written by an established, popular author. I am stunned that any publisher would put this into print. I have had many pleasant surprises at the quality of the low cost stories for Kindle - there really is no excuse for this one to be a) published and b) charged for.

I've never read any novels by Katie Fforde before, so this short story was a nice taster for me. I enjoyed reading it but hoped that it would go on a bit longer. It's been a good introduction for me though so I will now look out for some of her full-length novels to try.

I was SO disappointed with this. I downloaded it onto my Kindle and had finished it in less than an hour. It simply just suddenly ended and the whole story had no substance at all. I may have paid only 84p for it, but I don't feel it was even worth that small amount. I usually really enjoy Katie Fforde's writing, but not this one. My advice - don't buy!

I also bought this without realising it was a short story (don't like short stories). This wasn't even a good story. It finished abruptly at 50% complete. The remainder was the first chapters of a new book. I have other books by this author. Won't buy any more. Feel cheated.
